4 in 1 Choco-Cup-Cakes | Happy Friendship Day

Its friendship week fever everywhere and my outlook in-box has been overflowing with friendship chain e-mails for the past one week. E-mails wishing this understanding relationship to last for eternity, messages wishing good health and ever-lasting happiness to friends and kinsmen are in abundance. The season has come to an end and Friendship day is being celebrated today. So first and foremost, Happy Friendship day to all my blog friends !!!

When I was in college, me and my friends used to gather in our college cafeteria, have a small celebration with the then-available-pocket-money (that would be not exceeding Rs.10 per head) and then share the friendship bands with one another. Lovable days those were. We even had a sentiment that ppl who didn't remove the bands for more number of days where the ones with true friendship and so we would have it tied around our wrists for weeks together. But today, friends have scattered all around the world and friendship has gone down to yearly meet-ups, text messages and e-mails. Days when we joined hands to celebrate friendship day have gone by and we have moved on to update the FB status with Friendship day wishes.

Though I don't meet up with my friends often, Mr.A makes it a point that he meets his friends atleast once every month and on friendship day its a must. I envy boys in this matter. They liven up their relationships by meeting often. So when they put on a plan to meet up on friendship day, I made some chocolate delicacies for the entire lot. A simple yet chocolate filled happiness.

~*What U Need*~
Dark chocolate bar - as needed
Chocolate Ganache
Perfect Chocolate Cake
Colored Sprinkles / Chocolate Coated Cornflakes
Mini muffin liners

How I Made it:
To know how I made the perfect chocolate cake and chocolate ganache, click here. I used the same recipe.
Crumble the chocolate cake, pour few tablespoons of chocolate ganache over it and mix well. Now, how much cake and ganache u need is totally up to you and your sweet-tooth ;)
Melt the chocolate bar using double boiler method or microwave in high @ intervals of 15 sec till the chocolate completely melts. Now pour 2 tablespoons of molten chocolate into the muffin liners and using a pastry brush, coat the walls of the liners evenly. Pour out the extra chocolate. Freeze these liners for 2-3 hrs / till the chocolate has solidified. Once done, take them out and peel off the muffin liners. Freeze till use.

Take out the chocolate cups, fill it with desired amount of chocolate-ganache cake, top it off with a generous spoon of chocolate ganache, garnish with colored sugar balls / sprinkles / chocolate-coated-cornflakes (recipe coming soon) and chill it for half an hour and then serve. The crunchiness of the nearly tempered chocolate together with the rich cake and ganache is a feeling to die for.

Its not over yet. I have a small compliment to give away to all my dear blog friends on this lovely day. A token to your love and friendship. A small award. Do grab this (hope everyone would do it) and pass it around to all your dear ones to keep the love going around.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,

Signs off!!!

  24. "Happy Friendship Day" girl:)That is a real treat for the special day. I can understand what you say- boys are really lucky [or should I say,they make it a point] to keep up with friends by monthly meets. I guess it is just the way of life but I do feel girls should put in more effort:)

    Awesome recipe dear and gorgeous pics..

    Herbs and Flowers:Basil. Do send in your entries dear:)
